    boston - halloween race

    Team Gigantic present another last minute alleycat to follow up on the demonic deviance of the 6/6/6 alleycat

    Tooth Rot - 10/31
    6:30
    cemetary on the common - boylston & tremont
    $5 - money covers spokecard costs and will go to the top 3 riders


    as always we will need people to work checkpoints.
    we're working out checkpoint locations and the nasty things you're going to have to do.

    get excited, this is going to be awesome.

    the question is: will I be able to take time off of work?

    wow dude, you're ambitious! dig it though.
    we actually hadn't decided on a name for the race yet... i just said halloween proper because other races like nyc are over the weekend. so that "name" will change... dig the design though.

    if you want to do the flyer though that'd be awesome... and pixel will take up the spokecard

    5:30 will be pretty hellish on a Friday, and judging by the copius amounts of kids who seem to love to hit ped's and cars in these races...... I also don't get off work downtown til 5:30-6, which is very common for couriers. I'd say you might want to push it up a bit, like 6:30, for more reasons than one.

    Yeah, it is.

    I don't know why I assumed Friday.

    Either way - 6:30 is better I think.

    Ok sounds good.. I still favor 6:30 also.

    I think that although a lot of us around here don't exactly have suit and tie 8-5 jobs, we still have commitments(work/school) until 5 or 6 on the weekdays. Plus the traffic factor as mentioned.

    I think 'Halloween Proper' has got a nice ring to it, as a matter of fact...
